My name is Nicolas Frias and I have Acute Intermittent Porphyria, two of my three children have AIP and my sister died years ago of complications of an attack because she was given the wrong medication. Since then, I have carried a list of safe and unsafe drugs with me at all times, but now in the era of ubiquitous internet and smartphones, I decided to create this site and the mobile web app that goes with it.
This site is dedicated to people with porphyria. The drug safety information provided here comes from two well-known databases. I am not directly affiliated with any of them, I merely aggregate their information. As such, I am not responsible for the accuracy of the information provided.
By using this web site you agree that I accept no responsibility for any error, difference of opinion, or any adverse consequences arising from or occasioned by the use of information published on this website.
